Everybody that sees a steel expandable baton wants one. My dads neighbor noticed his, and bought one. People on the street see them hooked to our pockets, and buy them on the spot. This sends me home empty handed, requiring me to buy a new one. Security guards and business owners practically beg me for one, sometimes two.
The biggest surprise though is that they are loved by managers and high ranking executives. One time at work, this female manager saw my steel expandable baton, and had to have one. She loved her steel baton so much, that she couldn’t keep her hands off it. All day she would repeatedly open and close it, just to hear the loud click. Then she would wave it all over the place while making noises, as if she was hitting stuff. Other employees in the office saw her enthusiasm and they wanted one also. Before I knew it, everybody had one.
Steel Batons Aren’t Just Self Defense, They Are Life
I could go an all day about how well these steel batons are made, and how everyone who sees one, has to have one. Or the benefit of being able to collapse them when not in use, making them super portable. You can put them anywhere such as backpacks, handbags, glove boxes, or clip them onto your belt. Yes, they come with a high quality holster that clips onto your belt. These are all great features but what kind of value do they bring to you?
They might look like simple self defense, steel sticks, but they are much more than that. One of these awesome steel batons might be the difference between life and death. Think very carefully about the scenario that I’m going to present to you. Imagine, that one night you’re walking down a dark and deserted road. It’s very late, and you’re coming from an evening out with your family. It can be a wife and child or elderly parents. Suddenly out of nowhere, a crazy lunatic comes out with a knife. Apparently this guy is on some heavy drugs, and he’s waving a knife around. He doesn’t want anything but to stab you to death and then leave you to die, bleeding all over the pavement.
Steel Batons Can Effectively Stop A Crazy Attacker
This is a very tough situation to be in, and you only have a few options. You could try to stop this lunatic empty handed, but this isn’t the most efficient way to handle this situation, or the safest. Punching him could leave you with a broken hand, taking away one of your valuable resources that you desperately need. But that’s if he doesn’t punch a bunch a knife wounds into you like a sewing machine. Knife attacks don’t happen like they do on television, and they come extremely fast. What do you think will happen to your loved ones after this lunatic is done with you?
You could try running for help, but your loved ones would be left to take care of themselves, and most likely meet an unfortunate fate. A steel baton can be swung at incredible speed, and hits very hard. It can break bones and drop larger, more aggressive, stronger attackers very quickly and easily. And against a crazy fool with a knife, it gives more reach, keeping him at a safe distance, away from you.
Steel Batons Are A deterrent
Steel expandable batons aren’t just effective at fending off crazy lunatics with knifes. They can also stop an attack from happening in the first place. I’ll never forget the story from a security guard that bought a steel baton from me about 6 years ago. He was just getting off work, and decided to go to the bar to get a drink. While at the bar he accidentally bumped into a disruptive patron who happened to have too many drinks. After trying to calm the situation down to no avail, the security guard decided to leave. The drunken patron, decided that he wasn’t going to let the situation go, and followed the security guard out the door. Seeing that the drunken patron was a very large man, who was built like a tree trunk, the security guard knew he didn’t stand a chance.
After many attempts of trying to reason with this hulk of a man, the security guard knew he needed an extra advantage. With a quick draw from the holster, a flick of the wrist, and a loud click, the steel baton made one heck of an impression on the big man. He quickly went from super aggressive, to suddenly changing his mind about wanting to fight the security guard. Instead he apologized, and went back into the bar to join his friends. Nobody got hurt, the cops never go involved, and everybody went home, instead of jail.
Steel Batons Can Stop Dog Attacks
I’ve lost count of how many times a dog has chased me on my bicycle or tried to attack me while walking. It always happens at the worst possible times, when there’s nothing around to grab. Luckily, I had my steel baton during the occasions this happened. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not an animal beater, and I’ve never whacked a dog with it. Remember the loud click I told you it makes when opening it? As soon as I whipped the steel baton open, the noise and the sight of it scared the angry, aggressive dog away.
Dog bites can be very dangerous. I’ve seen what a dog bite can do and it’s much worse than you can imagine. My dad was taking his little dog for a walk one time, and this pit bull snuck up on them. The pit pull grabbed my dads little dog by the neck, and swung her all over like a rag doll. The pit bull literally ripped her throat wide open exposing the esophagus and ripping the veins apart.
My dad was punching the dog in the head with very little effect. Finally, when the pit bull let go, the damage was done. As my dad picked up his little dog to carry her to safety, the pit tried to bite his arm, taking a piece of his dogs ear off, and leaving scratches on his arm. The pit barely missed, taking a chunk out of his forearm out. Luckily the pit decided to walk away. After many surgeries and lots of recovery, my dads dog made it through, but was never the same again. Had he been carrying a steel baton, none of this might have happened, saving tons of money and aggravation
How To Use An Expandable Steel Baton
Expandable steel batons can be very effective, but also very deadly if not used properly. These are not toys and should be used by adults only. You should only use a steel baton as a last resort, and if you do, it’s important that you know the proper areas to hit an attacker. Always aim to hit areas such as the thighs, shins, arms and hands. A steel baton hits with incredible speed and power. It can literally break bones. This means that you should never aim for the head or neck area.
Steel batons also come in many different sizes. They can range from 12 inches long, to way over 30 inches. From personal experience, 21 inches seems to be the best size for everyone, no matter what your height and built. And yes, even woman can use one. Steel batons in the 21 inch length gives the best combination of weight, while still giving precise control.
Steel Batons Give Peace Of Mind
Some people might look at steel expandable batons and think that they are a waste of money. Before you start believing this, look at all the violence that’s on the news. Many innocent victims thought they’d never be a victim of crime, but look what happened. Anybody and everybody can be a victim at any time and place. You can either pretend that violence doesn’t occur or you can be prepared for it. Violence can happen at any moment and when it does, could you honestly say that you’d be able to save your loved ones? Why leave this to chance? Once our loved ones are gone, no amount of money can ever replace them. That’s why for the small price that these steel batons cost, I am at least giving myself some kind of chance to protect what’s most important to me.
